As if you needed another reason to get your “namaste” on, Twig + Petal is here with a friendly reminder that Sunday, May 21st is International Yoga Day!
It should come as no surprise that here at Twig + Petal, we’re all about natural wellness and healing, and we firmly believe that process starts from within. Yoga is our favorite way to relax, unwind, and tap into our inner awesomeness—while working up a healthy sweat in the process.
Yoga comes with a wide range of benefits—from the physical, to the emotional, to the spiritual. On the physical side, it goes without saying that those who regularly practice enjoy increased flexibility, better muscle strength and tone, improved respiration and energy, weight reduction, cardiovascular health, and injury protection. But from and emotional standpoint, yoga can also be a powerful tool. Researchers have found that practicing yoga can help promote healthier relationships, improved self-esteem, and help release and heal a wide range of emotional traumas. It’s even being used as part of a new method of therapy to help young girls who have been victims of childhood trauma). It’s powerful stuff, you guys!
So on May 21st, Twig + Petal encourages you to push back your brunch plans and take part in a local yoga class. Or, Shavasana from the privacy of your own home with one of the many emerging websites that offer yoga and meditation online, such as Do Yoga With Me.
Already love yoga? Up your Om and hone your craft by diving into a book such as Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit: A Return to Wholeness by Yoga Journal’s renowned Donna Farhi (a must-have for yogis of all skill levels). Or supplement your practice with Twig + Petal’s one-of-a-kind Om Blend, Bath Salts, or all-in-one-kit. Because really… couldn’t we all use a little instant Zen?
So remember… get bending on Sunday, May 21st. We’ll see you in Warrior II.
